Faceted Amethyst Hanging Earrings
Beautifully faceted oval purple amethyst set in silver cups hanging from hand forged silver hooks.
Amethyst is the birthstone of February, and is said to strengthen relationships and give its wearer courage. At one time, only royalty could wear the gem. Ancient Greeks thought that the amethyst guarded against intoxication. In fact, “amethyst” comes from amethystos, a Greek word meaning “sober.” It is also the gem that married people traditionally gift on their 33rd wedding anniversary.
Indian jeweller Poppy Dandiya has always been one of our favourite makers. Influences from ancient spiritual cultures have embodied his ruggedly beautiful jewels with timeless appeal. Now retired from making to give his full attention to his meditation & yoga practice, we are lucky to share a treasure trove of his final collection.
